"There is no doubt that Voir are the more naturally gifted" ..."They do have a romantic vibe that D/W don't" What romantic vibe? IMO, V/M look like brother and sister: same build, same looks (fair-skinned brunettes): Nan & Bert, the Bobbsey Twins of ice dance. And "the more naturally gifted"? Really? Please, enough of these condescending comments, descriptions. And as far as which teams will end up on the podium, nothing is a sure thing at this point. Back on topic to P/B: maybe this switch to Shpilband is their "go big or go home" decision/action and it will be interesting to see what changes, if any, he'll make.
